Universal testing machines include electromechanical and hydraulic systems to perform static testing, including tensile, compression, bend, peel, tear, shear, friction, puncture, and other mechanical tests.
Universal Testing Systems up to 300 kN
Single and dual column table model and floor model testing systems with a force capacity range of 0.02 N (2 gf) to 300 kN.
Industrial Universal Testing Systems up to 2000 kN
Instron’s Industrial Series includes frames with single or dual test spaces and range in force capacity from 300 kN to 2000 kN.
3400 & 6800 Series System Retrofits
Instron system retrofits extend the longevity of compatible legacy electromechanical testing systems and upgrades them with the latest 3400 or 6800 control electronics, software, and testing functionality.
5900 Series System Retrofits
5900 Series system retrofits allow you to upgrade compatible legacy static hydraulic testing systems with 5900 control electronics and the latest software.
Multi-Station Test Frames
The 6800 Series Multi-Station System offers enhanced throughput with its ability to perform simultaneous, independent tests on up to five separate specimens using a single load frame.
Custom Universal Testing Machines
For those testing applications that require more than a standard frame offers, our Engineered Solutions Group is available to design specialized systems to fit your needs – including taller or wider frames, custom safety features, high-speed frames, automation/robotics, and more.
